Of the Smothers Brothers television fame. That Dick Smothers! He’s coming to live in Lake Geneva along the shore of the east side of Geneva Lake. He will take up residence during the warmer months, not far from where BigFoot Beach begins on the south side. What a pleasure it will be to occasionally encounter this extraordinary man. His brother remains in Los Angeles, quite successful and still working in television and film. Not only did Dick have the terrifically powerful late sixties television show, but he also played a senator in the movie Casino, and was recently a judge in the movie The Informant.
Pedestrian struck by a car at Main and Broad Street.
The woman was transported to Lakeland and her condition is unknown at this time…although she was able to step into the emergency vehicle for the trip. These kinds of accidents are happening all the time during summer hours in Lake Geneva. This woman was actually in the crosswalk (the one from Cornerstone across Broad to Jayne) and had the light in her favor, but the car that hit her was turning right to head north on Broad from that side lane. The driver did not see the woman and proceeded after stopping. There were no “guilty” people involved in this accident but the driver is certainly liable for injury and monetary stuff, without much question. Be careful in downtown Lake Geneva. People are not really watching like they might be expected to be when traveling through town, especially during summer months when there’s so much to see.
A friendly reminder:
Trick or Treating in Lake Geneva is this Sunday, October 28th noon-4pm. This is a change from previous years to help keep it a safe fun day and accommodate busy families. This day and time will include any downtown businesses that choose to participate. Also on Sunday, the town of Delavan will have trick or treating from noon to 3 p.m., Geneva Township will be from 2 p.m. through 6 p.m., and Lyons will be from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. Fontana, Walworth, Bloomfield, and Genoa City are having trick or treating on Halloween night from 4 p.m. through 7 p.m. Williams Bay and Elkhorn are also sticking with the old tradition, and hosting trick-or-treating on Halloween from 5 p.m. through 7 p.m. Whatever you decide to do, be safe and have fun.
